Sir Walter Scott's "Letters on Demonology and Witchcraft" were his contribution to a series of books, published by John Murray, which appeared between the years 1829 and 1847, and formed a collection of eighty volumes known as "Murray's Family Library." In these "Letters upon Demonology and Witchcraft," addressed to his son-in-law, written under the first grasp of death, the old kindliness and good sense, joined to the old charm in story-telling, stand firm yet against every assault; and even in the decay that followed, when the powers were broken of the mind that had breathed, and is still breathing, its own health into the minds of tens of thousands of his countrymen, nothing could break the fine spirit of love and honour that was in him. When the end was very near, and the son-in-law to whom these Letters were addressed found him one morning entirely himself, though in the last extreme of feebleness: his eye was clear and calm—every trace of the wild fire of delirium was extinguished: "Lockhart," he said, "I may have but a minute to speak to you. My dear, be a good man—be virtuous, be religious—be a good man. Nothing else will give you any comfort when you come to lie here."
Lockwood's analysis of the role the fir tree branch brushing against his window
plays in his dream is consistent with Scott's in Letters on Demonology and
Witchcraft (1830), a book Brontë certainly read with interest. Scott points out that

An annotated version of the famous love story provides philosophical, historical, economic, political, and religious context to the author's words; unpacks allusions to other works of literature; and translates the thick Yorkshire dialect of some of the characters.
What was left unpaid at his death was cleared afterwards by the success of his
annotated edition of his novels. No tale of physical strife in the battlefield could be
as heroic as the story of the close of Scott's life, with five years of a death-struggle

In the 1990s alone, more than 400 works on angels have been published, adding to an already burgeoning genre. Throughout the centuries angels have been featured in, among others, theological works on scripture; studies in comparative religions; works on art, architecture and music; philosophical, sociological, anthropological, archeological and psychological works; and even a book length psychoanalytical study of the implications that our understanding of angels has for our understanding of sexual differences. Access to the multitude of angelic works is simplified with this bibliography, which lists 4,355 works, arranged alphabetically by author. Each entry contains a source for the reference, often a Library of Congress call number followed by the name of a university that holds the work. Key words pertaining to the works are included when available, and over 750 of the entries are annotated. Extensive indexes to names, subjects and centuries provide further utility.
